I'm so happy with my brand new ASUS G35DX Gaming PC, however I'm anxiously watching the news about Samsung 980 Pro SSD drives that an immediate firmwire update is recommended, otherwise the drive suffers irreversible damage
and become read-only. The problem is that the built-in SSD drive in my ASUS computer is an OEM 980 Pro edition (PM9A1), so it is not compatible with Samsung's firmware updater.
Am I need to updating the firmware at all? My current versions are the following: Firmware: GXA7301Q, Serial Number: S676NF0R
As far as I know, other manufacturers (like Dell or Lenovo) who also use this drive in their brand computers are releasing a custom update. Is ASUS planning to release its own firmware for the SSDs in their machines, or can it provide a download location from which to get it? According to the news, every day, every hour, every minute counts! So far, I have only found forum posts from the Far East (like this: https://www.chiphell.com/thread-2477782-1-1.html
), from which it would be risky to download a firmware update. Thanks for your help in advance!
